My latest obsession with nude shades has literally burnt a hole in my wallet. I started off with Mac Whirl (from the Little Mac Collection), followed by Wet N Wild Give Me Mocha, all thanks to the Sale season and discounts everywhere. Discounts lead to temptation; and I ended up hoarding a lot of products. However, there is one product in a particular shade that I had earmarked on which Nykaa would never offer discounts. Yes, I guess the title of this blogpost must have already hinted you about the product. It is the Nykaa Matte-ilicious Crayon Lipstick in the shade Jade Rose 11.
Nykaa has come up with 12 beautiful shades in this range. Starting from Reds to Pinks, Purples to Browns, all the common shades have been covered in this range. I chose Jade Rose immediately after I saw it on my friend. It looked amazing on her! I waited for sometime so that I would buy it whenever Nykaa offers some discount on this. However, Jade Rose was never on discount. Very hesitantly, I added it to my cart along with a few other things. A gift with purchase in the form of a Nykaa So Matte Lipstick was also added in my cart (Lucky Me)!
The packaging reminded me of the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Nykaa has immitated the packaging of their So Matte Lipstick from Nars Audacious, and now this. It comes in a Pink Cardboard Box (The typical Nykaa packaging). The Lip Pencil has to be sharpened and comes along with a free sharpener.
Nykaa describes Jade Rose as a dusky pink shade on their website.
Our MATTE-ilicious in Jade Rose is a dusky pink that is beyond pretty! You’ll be the girl who’ll be flipping the universe upside down with your gorgeous pout.

Jade Rose is a perfect nude for dusky skin tone. It can be used as a daily wear shade and looks amazingly pretty. It has a velvet like matte texture that lasts for roughly five to six hours with oily meals. It glides effortlessly on my lips and dried down to a matte formula; totally matte. The staying power is definitely above average. It feels very comfortable on your lips and since it comes in the form of a pencil, it can be used as a lip liner as well. The added advantage is that the pencil form makes it easy to define the lips.
